HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Wollaton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Wollaton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the Wollaton property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Wollaton property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can houses constructed with stone cause issues for buyers? What related issues should we be aware of?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of homes in Wollaton. Defects affecting stone-built homes in Wollaton can vary, weathered stone being relatively common. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, which may also require attention. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A local builder has said subsidence may be a problem impacting the apartment. Is this a urgent risk, and what can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Movement of a building on a structural level is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. Heave is less common, and may result from the removal of a tree or shrub and its root network no longer draws water from the subsoil.

Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. For example, water leaking from a broken drainpipe will wash soil away from the foundations. By reducing the volume of the subsoil, the earth is more readily displaced by the weight of the property. In severe temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will your RICS Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Wollaton which we wish to buy.

Stucco is really a specific type of render. Usually stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth stone like surface. The effect is highly appealing and is found on Victorian and Regency houses. Stucco is often problematic and Wollaton Homebuyer Reports commonly discover potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when it is faced with driving rain which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage. Other issues might result from the heavy loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Resolving problems may be expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.
